I had one like this, underpowered little thing with it's 1300cc transverse mounted engine. in the late 60s parts for these were difficult to get. But I made it scoot, and it got me laid.:D:D:D
I had both a 72 BGT and a 67 Roadster, both had the 1800 and 4 speed, 110mph was top speed, but it was scary above 80! Sure do miss that BGT, Roadster not so much! My 69 Alfa GTV8 is much a better road car, and far more dangerous!

Wasn't the MGB and the Roadster the same thing?

My brother had one like this as his first car... I found it a bit dull since I was a fan of road racing.

Oh my! Now my tongue is getting hard.

Here is something on the BGT (B GT)
"The fixed-roof MGB GT was introduced in October 1965. Production continued until 1980, although export to the US ceased in 1974. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking greenhouse designed by Pininfarina and launched the sporty "hatchback" style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the B GT offered the utility of a station wagon while retaining the style and shape of a coupe." MG MGB - Wikipedia

If you end up getting a little British rocket, I have a supercharger for one, works on any engine from the 1800 on up to the big 6s! Make ya a smokin deal on it, im not going to use it!:(
